Women's Co-op

Dastkar Ranthambore is a nonprofit organization that produces handicrafts created by local villagers, particularly women, from the area around Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan, India.

The mission of Dastkar Ranthambore is to use craft production to improve the economic and social status of villagers by providing new sources of income, paying fair wages, marketing their goods and telling their stories. And to effect long-term social change in and around Ranthambore. This gives the woman an opportunity to learn a skill and earn money.
